The 801 crew has been toying with the idea of an outdoor hacking event for a couple years
and this year we’re taking a swing at it.
July 11-13th at Jordanelle State Park.
We’ve reserved a 50 person campground that will accommodate 40 cars, with a pavilion and tent sites.
This will be an outdoor weekend-long event featuring crypto challenges, geocaching, lockpicking, packet analysis, web apps, wifi and more. The competition will be jeopardy board style with challenges in each category. This is an individual event – no formal teams. Collaboration is discouraged but totally allowed. The challenges will range in skills and difficulty and hopefully provide fun for all. I’ll provide the core infrastructure to hack, but internet connectivity and power are on you. Inverters and solar are highly encouraged over generators. There will be prizes awarded for:
Top 3 high scores and most creative/efficient/effective/awesome power setup. Additional categories may be added later.
We will be running a small generator to power the game, we will make surplus power available if it exists. You should plan to provide power for yourself with an inverter, solar, generator, etc.
This will be a family friendly event but expect beer drinking, late night campfire shenanigans,
and the potential for dialog that would make a longshoreman blush. We’ll do our best to
behave, but if you and/or your brood have puritan sensitivities and/or a deep prudish streak,
you may want to sit this one out.
The campground is near water. Don’t drown. Do enjoy swimming, boating and general marine frolicking.
We’ll have a fire pit and a bbq. Bring wood and food. You’ll want to eat occasionally and wood burning fires burn wood so we’ll need wood to burn.
All ticket proceeds go to cover the cost of the campsite, generator, etc. If we generate any surplus revenue it will go towards prizes and supplies.
